Basic Tree Maintenance Tips
Trees can often be taken for approved but extreme weather condition can take its toll. It is essential to keep trees healthy and try to avoid diseases or weather damage.
One of the very first things you can do is find out about the trees you want to take care of and their particular requirements. If you’re uncertain about the sort of tree you have, there are numerous resources online to assist you, such as the Forestry Commission Tree Name Trail. When investigating trees, the main points to watch out for are:
- Kind of soil required
- Quantity of water needed
- Particular level of sensitivities (dry spell, water, wind, etc).
Once you understand more about your trees, follow these 5 tips to keep your trees resilient and healthy.
Protect the roots.
Focus on the zone around a tree as much as where the branches extend. Roots can extend beyond this zone but this is the location where roots are more delicate. The key is to make sure that the soil is not too compact so that roots can keep taking in water and oxygen.
Safeguard the bark.
Think of the bark as an armour that safeguards the tree. Protecting the tree bark will prevent infections, illness or insect activity. Look out for potential threats that could harm tree bark, including:.
- Vehicles: trees near roadways or driveways can suffer hits from tall vehicles. Eliminate lower branches to avoid damage and make sure trees are visible during the night.
- Lawn sprinklers: a spray of water that repetitively hits bark at the same place can cause damage. If you utilize sprinklers to water your lawn, make certain these do not directly hit trees.
- Branches: branches rubbing against each other can cause damage to the bark. Prune branches correctly so branches do not get laced.
- Yard equipment: put on; t get lawn devices near to the tree trunks as this can cause serious damage to the bark.
Trees typically grow well in existing moisture conditions and don’t require any additional watering. Nevertheless, depending on your local climate, you might have to water your trees throughout extended durations of drought. If you do have to water trees in the summer season, a periodic deep watering is chosen to a frequent misting. In winter trees should not need any watering.
We’ve previously written about pruning trees as it’s an essential part of tree upkeep. It’s something you can do yourself if you know what you are doing, otherwise you can always hire a professional. The main things to keep an eye out for are:.
- Crossing branches: get rid of the smaller sized branch so the stronger one can grow without being damaged.
- Broken and dead branches: a clean cut will help the tree recover.
Low branches: remove branches that are low and are vulnerable to damage (i.e. by an effect). You can likewise remove low branches for aesthetic purposes.
Keep soil healthy.
There are 2 ways you can make sure that the soil around your tree is rich in nutrients.
- Use mulch. Spread out a layer of mulch around your tree, about 2 to 4 inches thick. The mulch does not have to touch the trunk.
- Plant lawn or some kind of ground cover. Dead plant product will decay in the ground and improve the soil. Make certain your plants can thrive in the shade and that their roots don’t take on the tree.
